Ignacio Chillida: "The first international work of my father did with granite from O Porriño"


The virtue is near the right angle. This holding Eduardo Chillida Juantegui (San Sebastián 1924-2002): "The right angle has gotten me to look the most beautiful between all angles, but it is intolerant, it does not admit dialogue just with equals. Considering this power of the right angle, I think there are angles around, from 88 to 93 degrees, which is just as strong and at the same time are more open to dialogue, dialogue between them “. I think that virtue is close to a right angle, but not in him. "the argument can be seen in the exhibition of Eduardo Chillida Questions which opens today at 20.00 am at the kiosk Alfonso de A Coruña. Ignacio Chillida, son and curator, smiles and observes that the father "intolerance not understand or angles or anything."

-What highlights of the exhibition?

-In The second floor are two speeches: the graphic work in general, and the tribute to Bach, with an artist's book. They are recorded in the sixties, making the tour of 28 prints, with different techniques, themes and sizes very first.

-Why Bach?

-For him Bach was important because he said it was like the sea that is always the same but always different. The music has a lot to do with his work, made his first important works were The music of constellations. And it is the physical book Bach, a large format.

-And are always questions...

-The Exhibition is called Questions for in the inaugural speech at the Academy of Fine Arts read these and many more that he had. The leaves of the book are twelve were handwritten and collage. There is only one specimen, which is reading in the pictured entrance to the exhibition is a facsimile we did for sale because people wanted him, but he did it is with rings, a very simple book.

-The organizers emphasize the diversity of works in this exhibition, do you see like that?

In the beginning I thought to bring greatest works, at least some, but then I realized it was a mistake, it was better to fill the spaces with bases and smaller pieces. The answers to these questions are precisely the works and are not about sizes ever, because, among other things, all are equally monumental sculptures, small or large, because he always worked in relation to human scale. Where easier to see is in alabaster.

 -And that relationship with poets such as Jorge Guillén?

-The Main point of contact with Guillen was in topics like that of The deeper is the air that Guillen wrote and did a wonderful book called Beyond. From there made twenty-odd works and the last of this series is the monument of Tindaya.

 - Which has come to nothing?

We will see, because the Canarian government has just approved the draft protection of the mountain. Since arriving there Chillida the mountain cannot visit, before doing what they pleased. What is missing is the money to do the project.

 - Was your father in Galicia?

There's a huge granite sculpture of O Porriño opposite the Museum of Houston. My brother and I came to spend the summer in Vigo and he went to the quarries of O Porriño to work with a man called Carballo. It was the 60's . His first international work of my father did with granite from there and the granite there has the Comb of the Wind are also Galicians.
